However, a foreign company demonstrated the different types of EVMs to the ECP. These differences come around in terms of hardware and software.

After these differences, the ECP raised concerns on how efficient the current EVMs would be. Regardless of the concern, the ECP chief guest confirmed that the current EVMs can be improved.
